Summary
When the mighty Endurance becomes trapped in the Weddell Sea, Ernest Shackleton's dream of crossing the Antarctic becomes a fight to save the twenty-seven souls that set sail with him. With five others, he takes to the sea in the lifeboat James Caird and sets a course for South Georgia, 800 miles away across treacherous waters. This graphic depiction brings to life the ceaseless struggle against the harshest environment on Earth, and culminates in the most dramatic real-life open-boat journey in the history of mankind. This is a graphic retelling of the greatest feat of leadership and survival ever recorded
